“A man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care, and then forgot all about them.” - Hardy Amies
Summer has ended on this side of the world. Autumn (Fall) has crept in, which means it's time to think about Winter fashion, as the temperature drops and fabrics begin to thicken. For me, now is the perfect time to start wearing sports jackets. They help add a casual element to weekends or relaxed weekday dressing - The best option is something I can run around in comfortably, staying warm as the air cools, rain starts to fall and the wind picks up.
This navy birds-eye weave is a great wardrobe staple and has a subtle texture too, fully lined and around 280-90g/10oz 100% pure wool. I'm wearing it here with Levi's vintage collection 1920s chinos for a touch of old school workwear. A sports jacket like this will easily take me through to the colder months as there are plenty of layering options. Lower temperatures don't have to mean dull dark colours, I'll be mixing earthy tones and check patterns to brighten up the gloomy days ahead.
